- Covalently organic derivatization of [Li⁺@C₆₀]PF₆– to obtain Li⁺-encapsulated PCBM, [Li⁺@PCBM]PF₆–, is described. Synthetic procedures, electrochemical properties, light absorption properties, details of isomerization from [5,6]- to [6,6]-isomer, and X-ray crystal structure of [Li⁺@PCBM]PF₆– are discussed.
